Here are the 6 trails to make your running experience smoother.
Marine Drive Promenade
Marine Drive is a 3.6-kilometre-long Boulevard in South Mumbai that will leave you starry-eyed especially if you plan to take a quick sprint across this stretch at night. Its 'C'-shaped six-lane concrete road along the coast, links Nariman Point to Babulnath and Malabar Hill which makes it look a pearl necklace.

Priyadarshini Park and Sports Complex (PDP) in South Mumbai is a multifaceted 20 acres manually nurtured garden and recreation centre with an uneven rocky patch of land. You will have the pleasure to jog amidst the trail of large Coconut trees while you experience a cool breeze sea frontal and great sunset view for you to cherish. On an uneven and bumpy track like the one in this park, you should pick ASICS GEL- NIMBUS 21 to easily blend in with those jerky grounds. So, irrespective of whether you go for your daily run or gear up to conquer a triathlon, these high-quality running shoes with overlay for support will make endless runs possible.
Bandstand and Carter Road
Want to kick in the morning fresh air while you jog on ‘em narrow paths? You can run miles on those not-so broad paths and create your own route by leaving the promenade and jogging along the road, up Cane Road, past Mount Mary’s Church and then down Mount Mary’s Hill to Mehboob Studio and back to the start of the promenade section (exciting, right?). You could even consider sprinting on Carter Road promenade along the sea. We say, hit the path with your ASICS METARIDE because these pair of shoes have a comforting sole for you to run on the most solid hard tracks with ease.
Fascinated about bumping into a celebrity in Bombae? Juhu is among the most affluent areas of the city and is home to a lot of Bollywood celebrities with an upmarket neighbourhood of Mumbai famously known for the beach. The waves hitting the shore on breezy mornings, makes it essential for a water-resistant pair of shoes that are suitable for quick sprints on that soft sand. ASICS ROADHAWK FF2 will help you run on the sand with ease because of its the seamlessly engineered finish that reduces the friction and irritability on your feet.
Challenge yourself and head to Siri Road, Dadi Sheth Wadi, Malabar Hill for breath-taking (quite literally) yet satisfying run, especially for marathon enthusiasts.

So, be it a daily run or an effort to gear up for that triathlon, these high-quality running shoes will overlay for support making endless runs possible.
Kanheri Caves, Sanjay Gandhi National Park
